Ligue 1 title rivals can serve up a cracker
Paris Saint-Germain have made the Ligue 1 title their own in recent times, claiming silverware in seven of the past eight seasons, but they are going to have to fight in order to retain their crown this time around.
Lille and Lyon are the two sides who appear most likely to usurp PSG in the French title race but Monaco, who head to the Parc Des Princes on Sunday on a ten-game unbeaten run, shouldn’t be dismissed either.
Monaco stunned PSG in a five-goal thriller at the Stade Louis II in November and their attacking quality gives them every chance of inflicting more misery on the Parisians this weekend.
Niko Kovac’s men have netted two or more in 16 of their 25 league games, with hosts PSG the only Ligue 1 side to surpass their total of 52 goals.
Attacking trio Wissam Ben Yedder, Kevin Volland and Aleksandr Golovin are performing at the peak of their powers and they should cause plenty of problems for the Ligue 1 heavyweights again.
That said, PSG are oozing confidence after their 4-1 crushing of Barcelona in the Champions League in midweek and in French starlet Kylian Mbappe, who tops the Ligue 1 scoring charts with 16 goals in 21 games, they have a player operating at the top of his game in the absence of injured teammate Neymar,
Monaco are bright going forward, but defensive deficiencies are a consistent feature in their matches and those vulnerabilities look sure to be exposed.
The Monegasques have shipped 37 goals in 25 league games – more than any other side in the top eight – and they have kept only two clean sheets in their last 13.
Each of the last seven meetings between these two French giants have featured at least four goals and we predict the trend to continue here.
Those looking for a speculative correct-score wager should plunge for PSG to exact their revenge in a repeat 3-2 victory.
